Hi! I’m a new owner of the WDTV Live
I thought the WD TV Live couldn’t pass through DTS-HD MA, but it turns out it can and does in some circumstances. I haven’t seen any info on this, all I can find is people complaining that it isn’t possible.
At any rate, i have a custom made BDAudio iso file (made by someone else with MultiAVCHD). WDTV Live correctly identifies the “DTSMA” track and my Onkyo receiver (TX-SR607) identifies the stream as DTS-HD MSTR.
Extracting the M2TS file from the ISO and playing it on the WDTV doesn’t work - then it only passes through the DTS. It only works when it’s inside the ISO, which leads me to believe that using MultiAVCHD, you can craft an ISO file with a working DTS-HD MA stream. Funny thing is that the WDTV displays “1 English, 1 DTSMA” in the top left corner if I play the ISO file and “Subtitle 1: English, Audio 1: DTSMA” if I play the extracted MT2S file.
My google searches hasn’t revealed any info on how to make such a BD ISO file in MultiAVCHD - does anyone know? Am I the first to actually see the WD TV Live pass through DTS-HD MA?
